3 Preface Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe Collaboration among members of the health care team to achieve excellence in patient care may at times be a challenge given the complex rules prescribed by Illinois law regarding health care team relationships. This publication provides a resource toward better understanding of the current regulatory requirements for health care team relationships, most specifically to do with advanced practice nurses authority to diagnose and prescribe. Statutory or rule text is in italics, and numerous footnotes point directly to the source of the information. Professional Definitions Advanced practice nurse or APN means a person who has met the qualifications for a: (i) certified nurse midwife (CNM); (ii) certified nurse practitioner (CNP); (iii) certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA); or (iv) certified clinical nurse specialist (CNS) and has been licensed by the Department [of Financial and Professional Regulation]. All advanced practice nurses licensed and practicing in the State of Illinois shall use the title APN and may use specialty credentials after their name. 1 Dentist means a person who has received a general license pursuant to paragraph (a) of Section 11 of this Act and who may perform any intraoral and extraoral procedure required in the practice of dentistry and to whom is reserved the responsibilities specified in Section Physician means a person licensed under the Medical Practice Act to practice medicine in all of its branches under the Medical Practice Act of Podiatric physician means a physician licensed to practice podiatric medicine. 4 Herein, also referred to as a podiatrist.

4 Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe I. ADVANCED PRACTICE NURSING The Nurse Practice Act (Act) authorizes licensure of nurses in three categories: licensed practical nurses 5, registered professional nurses 6 and advanced practice nurses (APN). 7 The Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Division of Professional Regulation, licenses nurses in Illinois. Advanced practice nursing (APN) licenses are granted in four categories 8 : 1. Certified nurse midwife 2. Certified nurse practitioner 3. Certified clinical nurse specialist 4. Certified registered nurse anesthetist All licensed APNs practicing outside a licensed hospital, hospital affilliate, or ambulatory surgical treatment center, must have a written collaborative agreement with a collaborating physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches, dentist or podiatric physician. 9 An APN with a collaborative agreement may care for a patient to the extent permitted by the collaborative agreement. 10 Collaboration and consultation are defined as follows: 11 Collaboration means a process involing 2 or more health care professionals working together, each contributing one s respective area of expertise to provide more comprehensive patient care. 2 Consultation means the process whereby an advanced practice nurse seeks the advice or opinion of another health care professional. n II. APN WRITTEN COLLABORATIVE AGREEMENT A written collaborative agreement shall describe the working relationship of the advanced practice nurse with the collaborating physician, dentist or podiatric physician. 12 This agreement is required, at a minimum, to contain the following information: 1. Authorized categories of care, treatment or procedures to be performed by the advance practice nurse Authorized procedures [that] require presence of the collaborating physician, dentist, or podiatrist, as the procedures are being performed Methods of communication available for consultation with the collaborating physician, dentist, or podiatric physician in person or by telecommunications in accordance with established written guidelines as set forth in the written agreement Any delegated prescriptive authority. 16

5 Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe Furthermore, the agreement must specify the authorized services, but is not required to describe the exact steps that an advanced practice nurse must take with respect to each specific condition, disease, or symptom. 17 Absent an employment relationship, an [collaborative] agreement may not restrict the categories of patients or third-party payment sources accepted by the advanced practice nurse. 18 Periodically, the physician or podiatric physician and APN should review the collaborative agreement and update it as necessary. A sample written collaborative agreement is provided in the Division of Professional Regulation rules. 19 APNs may enter into any reasonable number of written collaborative agreements. 20 APNs must inform each collaborating physician, dentist, or podiatrist of all collaborative agreements he or she has signed and provide a copy of these to any collaborating physician, dentist, or podiatrist upon request. 21 A physician attempting to collaborate with or provide medical collaboration and consultation to an unreasonable number of APNs could result in an inability to provide adequate collaboration. 22 The agreement must contain provisions detailing notice for termination or change of status involving a written collaborative agreement, except when such notice is given for just cause. 23 n III. APN SCOPE OF PRACTICE 3 An APN may only provide services within the actual scope of practice of the collaborating physician, podiatric physician or dentist. These are services that the collaborating physician or podiatrist is authorized to and generally provides to his or her patients in the normal course of his or her clinical medical practice 24 with separate provisions for certified registered nurse anesthetists 25 and dentists. 26 Generally provides to his or her patients in the normal course of his or her clinical medical practice means services, not specific tasks or duties, the physician or podiatrist routinely provides individually or through delegation to other persons so that the physician or podiatrist has the experience and ability to provide collaboration and consultation. (continued)

6 APN SCOPE OF PRACTICE continued Examples of the scope of APN practice include the following: Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe + A family practice physician who does not attend deliveries may not authorize in a written collaborative agreement an APN such as a nurse midwife to attend deliveries. A nurse midwife may not attend deliveries without a written collaborative agreement with a physician who does attend deliveries. The Medical Practice Act specifies: 27 With respect to labor and delivery, the collaborating physician must provide delivery services in order to participate with a certified nurse midwife. + A physician who does not treat minors may not authorize an APN to treat minors. + A physician who specializes in cardiac care may not enter into a collaborative agreement with an APN to provide comprehensive wellness care for women. Furthermore, a physician may not delegate duties which are required by statute to be performed by a physician. 28 A number of laws allow APNs to perform specific functions when authorized in the written collaborative agreement such as completion and execution of a school health examination. 29 The collaborating physician or podiatrist must provide collaboration and consultation with the advanced practice nurse at least once a month. 30 Collaboration and consultation are defined as follows: 31 4 Collaboration means a process involving 2 or more health care professionals working together, each contributing one s respective area of expertise to provide more comprehensive patient care. Consultation means the process whereby an advanced practice nurse seeks the advice or opinion of another health care professional. In addition, both the APN and collaborating physician or podiatrist must create and approve orders or guidelines which are periodically reviewed by them. 32 The services provided under the orders or guidelines must also be reviewed by the collaborating physician or podiatric physician. 33 n IV. CRNA SCOPE OF PRACTICE A CRNA may only attend to patients or provide services under the order or collaboration and consultation of an anesthesiologist, physician, dentist or podiatric physician. 34 No CRNA may provide anesthesia services independently or without the participation, presence, availability and approval of an anesthesiologist, physician, dentist or podiatrist. 35 Collaboration and consultation is required in all practice settings. 36 The Medical Practice Act of 1987 specifies the standards for collaboration: 37

7 CRNA SCOPE OF PRACTICE continued Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe Collaboration for a certified registered nurse anesthetist shall be adequate if: (1) an anesthesiologist or a physician participates in the joint formulation and joint approval of orders or guidelines and periodically reviews such orders and the services provided patients under such orders; and (2) for anesthesia services, the anesthesiologist or physician participates through discussion of and agreement with the anesthesia plan and is physically present and available on the premises during the delivery of anesthesia services for diagnosis, consultation, and treatment of emergency medical conditions. Anesthesia services in a hospital shall be conducted in accordance with Section 10.7 of the Hospital Licensing Act and in an ambulatory surgical treatment center in accordance with Section 6.5 of the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act. When services of an anesthesiologist are not available 24 hours a day at a hospital or ASTC, the hospital or ASTC is required to adopt an alternative policy requiring participation, presence, and availability of a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches in the development and approval of the anesthesia plan as well as remaining physically present during provision of the services. 38 In the office of a physician, podiatric physician or dentist, CRNAs may only provide services in accordance with a written collaborative agreement. 39 The written collaborative agreement must be with an anesthesiologist or the operating physician, operating dentist or operating podiatric physician. 40 The collaborating anesthesiologist or physician, dentist or podiatric physician, including an operating physician, dentist, or podiatric physician, must meet specified criteria to enter into a collaborative agreement with a CRNA to ensure required training and experience in the delivery of anesthesia physician requirements discussed later under VI. B Physician Office Anesthesia Requirement, or Dentist Office Anesthesia Requirement Both the collaborating physician, or dentist, and the CRNA must maintain current certification in advanced cardiac life support sponsored by the American Heart Association. 42 A CRNA in the office setting is required to follow Sections 1 through 11 of the Standards for Office Based Anesthesia Practice of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, 222 South Prospect Avenue, Park Ridge, Illinois (2005). 43 Under all practice settings, a CRNA has authority to select, order, and administer medication, including controlled substances drugs and apply the appropriate medical devices in the provision of anesthesia services under the anesthesia plan approved as required by the anesthesiologist, or operating physician, dentist or podiatrist. 44 No authority exists for CRNAs to prescribe anesthetic agents or devices independently or without an approved anesthesia plan. n

8 Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe V. DENTIST OFFICE ANESTHESIA REQUIREMENTS CRNAs only IN AN OFFICE SETTING ONLY A dentist may enter into a collaborative agreement with a CRNA for the delivery of anesthesia services. A dentist is not authorized to delegate prescriptive authority. 45 Dentists must possess the proper permit from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for the type of anesthesia to be delivered for any procedure. 46 > Minimal sedation (anxiolysis) No permit is required beyond the D.D.S. or D.M.D. degrees. 47 > Moderate sedation (conscious sedation) requires a Permit A. 48 > Deep sedation and general anesthesia requires a Permit B. 49 A certified registered nurse anesthetist who provides anesthesia services in a dental office shall enter into a written collaborative agreement with an anesthesiologist or the physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches or the operating dentist performing the procedure. The agreement shall describe the working relationship of the certified registered nurse anesthetist and dentist, and shall authorize the categories of care, treatment, or procedures to be performed by the certified registered nurse anesthetist. 50 In a collaborating dentist s office, the certified registered nurse anesthetist may only provide those services that the operating dentist with the appropriate permit is authorized to provide pursuant to the Illinois Dental Practice Act and rules adopted thereunder. 51 For anesthesia services, an anesthesiologist, physician, or operating dentist shall participate through discussion of and agreement with the anesthesia plan and shall remain physically present and be available on the premises during the delivery of anesthesia services for diagnosis, consultation, and treatment of emergency medical conditions A certified registered nurse anesthetist may select, order, and administer medication, including controlled substances, and apply appropriate medical devices for delivery of anesthesia services under the anesthesia plan agreed with by the operating dentist. 53 Dentists must maintain current certification in advanced cardiac life support for delivery of conscious sedation, moderate sedation, and general anesthesia. 54 In addition, the Dental Practice Act rules specific education, facility, and equipment requirements for the delivery of anesthesia in the office. 55 n VI. DELEGATED PRESCRIPTIVE AUTHORITY APNs are authorized to prescribe legend medications and devices, including controlled substances, only upon written delegation of authority from a collaborating physician or podiatric physician. 56 A dentist may not delegate prescriptive authority. The Nurse Practice Act specifies that this authority may, but is not required to, include prescription of, selection of, orders for, administration of, storage of, acceptance of, samples of, and dispensing over the counter medications, legend drugs, medical gases and controlled substances categorized as any Schedule III, through V controlled substances and other preparations, including but not limited to, botanical or herbal remedies. 57 In other words, any scheduled controlled substance, both narcotic and non-narcotic, may be delegated from any of these Schedules II, IIN, III, IIIN, IV, IVN, V.

9 DELEGATED PRESCRIPTIVE AUTHORITY continued Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe Further, a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches or podiatric physician may delegate limited authority to prescribe Schedule II and II-N controlled substances as follows: 58 A collaborating physician may, but is not required to, delegate authority to an advanced practice nurse to prescribe any Schedule II controlled substances, if all of the following conditions apply: (1) Specific Schedule II controlled substances by oral dosage or topical or transdermal application may be delegated, provided that the delegated Schedule II controlled substances are routinely prescribed by the collaborating physician or podiatrist. This delegation must identify the specific Schedule II controlled substances by either brand name or generic name. Schedule II controlled substances to be delivered by injection or other route of administration may not be delegated. [Nothing in this Section shall be construed to prohibit generic substitutions.] 59 (2) Any delegation must be controlled substances that the collaborating physician or podiatrist prescribes. (3) Any prescription must be limited to no more than a 30-day supply, with any continuation authorized only after prior approval of the collaborating physician or podiatrist. (4) The advanced practice nurse must discuss the condition of any patients for whom a controlled substance is prescribed monthly with the delegating physician or podiatrist. (5) The advanced practice nurse meets the education requirements of Section of the Illinois Controlled Substances Act. 7 Any prescriptive authority delegation must be included in a written collaborative agreement. 60 The delegating physician or podiatrist must have a valid Illinois Controlled Substance license and federal DEA number. 61 In addition, the physician or podiatrist is required to notify the Division of Professional Regulation of the specific written delegation and any subsequent termination of any delegation. 62 To prescribe controlled substances, an APN must possess a written delegation of authority, an Illinois mid-level practitioner controlled substance license and a federal DEA mid-level practitioner number. 63 After August 12, 2011 To obtain mid-level practitioner controlled substances license to prescribe Schedule II controlled substances an advanced practice nurse must meet the following education requirements: The advanced practice nurse must provide evidence of satisfactory completion of at least 45 graduate contact hours in pharmacology for any new license issued with Schedule II authority after August 12,

10 DELEGATED PRESCRIPTIVE AUTHORITY continued Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe To maintain authority to prescribe Schedule II controlled substances, an advanced practice nurse must annually complete 5 hours of continuing education in pharmacology. 65 An APN may not prescribe any medication or category of medication not included in the written delegation of authority. 66 An APN may receive and dispense samples per the collaborative agreement. 67 Prescribing beyond the delegated authority, but within the licensed category, is a violation of Illinois law for which an APN may be sanctioned. 68 Specifically, the law states: 69 Any advanced practice nurse who writes a prescription for a controlled substance without having a valid appropriate authority may be fined by the Department not more than $50 per prescription, and the Department may take any other disciplinary action provided for in this Act. The APN s prescription must be signed: 1. By the APN using the title APN; an APN may also use specialty credentials such as CNM, CNP, CNS or CRNA after their name For controlled substances, the APN s DEA number must be included, except for inpatient drug orders The name of the appropriate collaborating physician or podiatric physician must be printed or written on the prescription The collaborating physician s or podiatrist s signature is not required. 72 The delegating physician or podiatric physician must provide appropriate consultation and collaboration including but not limited to periodically reviewing the APN s orders and services provided to patients. 73 Further, controlled substance [m]edication orders shall be reviewed periodically by the collaborating physician or podiatrist. 74 n VII. PHYSICIANS AND PODIATRIC PHYSICIANS RESPONSIBILITIES A. OVERVIEW PHYSICIANS AND PODIATRIC PHYSICIANS The physician, or podiatric physician and APN arrangement is a team relationship. 75 Both parties are actively involved in providing patient care and treatment services. Physicians and podiatric physicians are responsible for providing collaboration and consultation to practicing APNs, except in a licensed hospital, hospital affiliate, or ambulatory surgical treatment center or dentist office. 76 (continued)

11 PHYSICIANS AND PODIATRIC PHYSICIANS RESPONSIBILITIES continued Advanced Practice Nurses Authority to Diagnose and Prescribe For physicians and podiatric physicians, adequate collaboration and consultation consist of: 77 (1) jointly developing the collaborative agreement and all orders and guidelines with the collaborating APN; (2) providing collaboration and consultation at least once a month; (3) actively participating by being available for consultation and referral; (4) maintaining methods of communication in person or by telecommunications. Collaboration and consultation are defined as follows: 78 Collaboration means a process involving 2 or more health care professionals working together, each contributing one s respective area of expertise to provide more comprehensive patient care. Consultation means the process whereby an advanced practice nurse seeks the advice or opinion of another health care professional. A collaborating anesthesiologist, physician, or podiatric physician under a collaborative agreement with a CRNA in the hospital, ASTC and office practice settings must also provide adequate collaboration for anesthesia services to the CRNA. 79 Adequate collaboration for anesthesia services is defined as follows: 80 (1) An anesthesiologist or a physician participates in the joint formulation and joint approval of orders or guidelines and periodically reviews such orders and the services provided patients under such orders; and (2) For anesthesia services, the anesthesiologist or physician participates through discussion of and agreement with the anesthesia plan and is physically present and available on the premises during the delivery of anesthesia services for diagnosis, consultation, and treatment of emergency medical conditions. Anesthesia services in a hospital shall be conducted in accordance with Section 10.7 of the Hospital Licensing Act and in an ambulatory surgical treatment center in accordance with Section 6.5 of the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act. 9 The anesthesiologist or operating physician, podiatric physician or dentist must agree with the anesthesia plan prior to the delivery of services. 81 B. PHYSICIAN OFFICE ANESTHESIA REQUIREMENTS IN AN OFFICE SETTING A physician entering a collaborative agreement with a CRNA must also meet specific criteria. The physician must either possess clinical privileges to administer anesthesia in a hospital or an ASTC, or complete minimum continuing medical education hours for the following designated forms of anesthesia: 82 (i) For conscious sedation only, the physician shall complete a minimum of 8 hours of continuing medical education (CME) within each three year license renewal period in delivery of anesthesia including the administration of conscious sedation. (continued)
